Seasonal Splendor:

  • Spring: As spring arrives, watch the Pacific Madrone bloom with small, bell-shaped flowers, offering a delicate contrast to its sturdy frame.
  • Summer: Its evergreen leaves maintain a vibrant green, while its reddish-brown bark, peeling in the summer heat, reveals a smooth, almost polished new layer beneath.
  • Autumn: While many trees show off in fall, the Madrone stands confidently evergreen, its berries ripening to a bright orange-red, a feast for the local birds.
  • Winter: Even in winter, the Madrone's deep green foliage and striking bark make it a standout in the landscape, a beacon of life in the dormant season.

Ideal Environment: This tree is a lover of the sun and well-drained soil. It's like the hardy fisherman of the plant world, thriving in tough coastal conditions and not afraid of a little wind or rocky soil.
